    I came across this today and thought I'd share. Looks like someone made a documentary on indie game development.

    http://mashable.com/2012/01/13/indie-games-documentary/

    Overall I think it looks pretty cool. Kinda makes me wish I was still working on indie games instead of working for the man.

    Can't wait to see this film.

    I too am looking forward it. I've been following this project closely ever since I helped funded it on Kickstarter and it looks like it going to have a very big impact.

    By the by, You can pre-order DVD's on their website: http://www.indiegamethemovie.com/

    I'm looking forward to this as well, and having following the project too. I was excited to learn that the world premiere of the film would be here in my state of Utah. Unfortunately (but fortunate for the film makers) it is part of the Sundance Film Festival, which makes tickets hard to come by. There is no general tickets available, so you basically have to be well connected to get a ticket. The ironic thing is that most of the local indie game developers aren't going to be able to see this film about indie game developers. Instead most of the viewers will be people in the mainstream games industry or the film industry. :( I guess I'm going to have to wait for the DVD release.

    Mmm... might sound negative but that doesn't sound good to me. Non-fiction documentary is one thing but a fictional thing... I can see The Big Bang Theory all over again. Sure it's amusing on a simple level, but really just ends up being a boy girl drama.

    I imagine it would be like those awful attempts at Gamer life style series.

    Yeah, I have my reservations, but they say it was picked up by Scott Rudin who done some good work: No Country for Old Men, The Social Network, The Truman Show, There Will Be Blood to name a few.
